NAPSA Research to Practice Webinar:
Mon, Jun 7, 2021 2:00 PM – 3:00 PM EDT
“The presenters will introduce the standardized measures used in the Elder Justice Innovation Grant: The Identification, Services, and Outcomes (ISO) Matrix. The assessment tool aims to capture Adult Protective Services (APS) outcomes. The psychometric quality of the measures and measurement burden on APS staff will be discussed. In addition, analysis of extreme cases using the ISO Matrix will be presented to demonstrate how standardized measures can provide feedback to improve APS practice.
